Apple MKH22LL/A overview

  • 1Description

The blue 16GB iPod touch from Apple has now reached its 6th generation, offering a music player, video camera, pocket computer, and portable gaming device, all in a single, sleek, anodized aluminum finish with up to 40 hours of battery life. The iPod touch offers a powerful A8 processor as well as a Retina display with multi-touch interface.

The iPod touch has front and rear cameras for taking photos and videos, as well as having live video chats over Wi-Fi with FaceTime. The M8 motion-sensing coprocessor makes for an improved gaming experience, which can be combined with the Game Center feature of iOS to play against your friends. The touch also connects to the App Store and iTunes, offers multitasking, allows you to connect to the Internet, check email, and much more.

Processing

A8 Processor
The Apple-designed A8 processor is built on 64-bit architecture and features GPU performance up to 10 times faster than the previous generation. The CPU performs up to six times faster than the previous-generation iPod touch.
M8 Motion Coprocessor
The M8 motion coprocessor continually measures physical motion from advanced sensors, including a gyroscope and accelerometer. This frees up valuable processing resources for the A8 chip. The M8 also provides accurate fitness tracking information, such as steps and distance, directly to the Health app.
Metal
The Metal API allows developers to design highly immersive console-style games. Metal is optimized to let the CPU and GPU work together to deliver detailed graphics and complex visual effects.

Design

Anodized Aluminum
This iPod touch features an anodized aluminum unibody design, similar to Apple's MacBook line. It's only 0.24" (6.1mm) thin and weighs just 3.1 ounces (88 grams). Aside from the ultraportable design, the anodized aluminum unibody features a supersmooth finish highlighted by its polished beveled edges.
A Wide Variety of Colors
The iPod touch comes in a variety of colors, which have been anodized right into the aluminum body. What you get is a saturated color that still lets the luster of the metal shine through.
4" Retina Display
The 4" multi-touch Retina display has an in-plane switching (IPS) panel that is capable of producing a native resolution of 1136 x 640 at 326 pixels per inch (ppi), an 800:1 contrast ratio, and a 500cd/m² max brightness. The screen also has a fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating.
Apple EarPods
Apple EarPods have a front vent, a rear vent, a bass vent and a primary acoustic outlet to provide deeper bass and better audio all around while staying stable in your ears.
Eco-Friendly
The iPod touch is made from recyclable materials, such as aluminum. Also, every iPod touch is free of toxic materials, such as brominated flame retardants (BFRs) and polyvinyl chloride (PVC).

Music

Cover Flow
Turn the iPod touch into landscape mode to reveal Cover Flow. In Cover Flow, you can glide through your music by album art with the flick of your finger.
iTunes and iCloud
Buy and download new music on your iPod touch over 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi with the iTunes app. If you have your iPod touch linked to your iCloud account, it will automatically push your just purchased songs to all your other Apple devices, such as your iPad, iPhone, Mac, and Windows computer.
Bluetooth and Airplay
Bluetooth 4.1 lets you pair your iPod touch to Bluetooth-enabled devices like headphones and speakers. You can also stream music from your iPod touch to AirPlay-enabled speakers over Wi-Fi, to your home entertainment system via Apple TV, or to any speaker connected to an AirPort Express.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My second iPod touch. I had a first generation iPod touch that I used to hook up with my cars USB connection. It has been great for so many years but lately would not connect to wifi to add music so it was time for an upgrade. The 6th generation iPod is an excellent upgrade and though it is mainly used as my primary source of music while commuting it has many features that will come in handy if my smartphone is out of commission.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Options It would be better if it played more formats of music. It would also be better if it had longer battery life per charge. However, the iPod Touch features bluetooth and wifi capabilities. So, it's a pretty good package for the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My First iPod I added an audio imput on an older truck & decided to buy an iPod instead of using my iphone 5. I've had it now for about a month to use before a review. I do like it and since it had the same camera as an iphone 6 is another reason for buying it to use as a backup for my iphone 5. It does not have as good a camera as my iphone 5 and the photos look like my wife's iphone 6 as the colors are not as vivid. It does play music very well. It is like an iphone 5 size wise.
